England in Australia ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 46 runs

Right, enough tattle. Strauss and Prior are out there, so are the Aussies. Brett Lee will start...

Evening all, Sahil here. What an enjoyable innings that was. Showed all the merits to the 50-over format when it's played on a fair pitch. Twists and turns, time for recoveries, comebacks and more recoveries. Marsh was stunning, almost as stunning as the Australian selectors, who ignored him for the World Cup squad until Hussey's injury.

So England have a modest but competitive target to test their new opening combination against. Matt Prior's impact in the field was visible - plenty of energy - and audible - he was constantly barking away. If he was asking for any condition to make his ODI comeback, I suspect these might be it. Gettable chase against plenty of pace. Tait could be the man for Australia, if he can bludgeon his way through the the openers England may wobble.

0.1

Lee to Strauss, no run, and a good start it is too, no wild pace or anything, just the humble merits of line and length. Strauss defends but tentatively

0.2

Lee to Strauss, no run, again Lee searches for the off-stump and finds Strauss defending very carefully. Placing the bat in line with the ball

0.3

Lee to Strauss, no run, the fuller length here draws Strauss into something vaguely more attacking but it finds mid-on

0.4

Lee to Strauss, no run, shorter from Lee, Strauss pulls straight to square leg

0.5

Lee to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss is away, England are away. Gets another good back-of-a-length delivery from Lee and nudges into the leg side

0.6

Lee to Prior, no run, Lee aims full for Prior's first delivery and it's jabbed out to cover. Good start from Lee

End of over 1 (1 run) England 1/0 (230 runs required from 49 overs, RR: 1.00, RRR: 4.69)
MJ Prior    0* (1b)      B Lee    1-0-1-0
AJ Strauss    1* (5b)     

Tait time!

1.1

Tait to Strauss, FOUR, oh! Starts very, very quickly indeed. Short ball which Strauss was waiting for but it was a bottom edge this far from the stumps. All of those hit for England, the luck is with them

1.2

Tait to Strauss, no run, this again is full of pace but the line wide of off allows Strauss to leave

1.3

Tait to Strauss, 1 wide, big grunt as he delivers but this is too far down leg

1.3

Tait to Strauss, 1 wide, and again. Big appeal from Haddin, but when isn't there?

1.3

Tait to Strauss, no run, better line this time, back of a length around off stump. Strauss is right behind it

1.4

Tait to Strauss, no run, the pace effect! It just gets a batsman's beans going. Wide of off and Strauss slashes wildly at fresh air

1.5

Tait to Strauss, 1 wide, banged in short. Very short. Too short for the umpire's liking. This is turning into a long over

1.5

Tait to Strauss, 1 run, shortish this time but only gets up around hip level and Strauss wheels away a pull to fine leg

1.6

Tait to Prior, no run, good finish to a lengthy over. Tait sliding the ball swiftly back into Prior who defends loosely

End of over 2 (8 runs) England 9/0 (222 runs required from 48 overs, RR: 4.50, RRR: 4.62)
MJ Prior    0* (2b)      SW Tait    1-0-8-0
AJ Strauss    6* (10b 1x4)      B Lee    1-0-1-0

2.1

Lee to Strauss, no run, Lee hitting those infamous 'right areas' and Strauss can only defend

2.2

Lee to Strauss, no run, good areas from Lee, hugging off stump on a fullish length. Good stare too as he collects in his follow through

2.3

Lee to Strauss, no run, a very straight delivery finds an equally straight bat. Lee is looking in good order so far

2.4

Lee to Strauss, 3 runs, wow, this is an excellent shot. Lee again hammering away on a good length and line, Strauss stood tall and punched a back-foot drive wide of mid-off

2.5

Lee to Prior, OUT, Prior's comeback is over! Lee is rewarded for a very good start. Good length ball around off stump, Prior got into position to defend but it clipped the outside edge and eased through to Watson at first slip

MJ Prior c Watson b Lee 0 (13m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

That 230 suddenly looks like 245. Trott is the new man...

2.6

Lee to Trott, no run, excellent finish to an excellent Lee over. First ball to Trott has him rushing to defend

End of over 3 (3 runs) England 12/1 (219 runs required from 47 overs, RR: 4.00, RRR: 4.65)
IJL Trott    0* (1b)      B Lee    2-0-4-1
AJ Strauss    9* (14b 1x4)      SW Tait    1-0-8-0

3.1

Tait to Strauss, 1 run, ooh, Tait bangs in another short ball and really rushed Strauss on the pull. Got it high on the bat and it looped short of fine leg

3.2

Tait to Trott, FOUR, another thunder-bolt short ball. Trott had only just thought about pulling and found the ball climbing towards his face. In the end he flapped a top edge that sailed over Haddin for four

3.3

Tait to Trott, no run, Tait is grunting as loud as he's bowling quick. Very. Happily for Trott this is outside off stump so he leaves alone

3.4

Tait to Trott, 1 leg bye, extreme pace just seems to create drama. Even leg bye, thudding off the thigh into the leg side, seems thoroughly hectic

3.5

Tait to Strauss, FOUR, Strauss is sitting on the back foot waiting for something short. Tait lands a shortish ball, rather than a bouncer, and Strauss is in position to bang a pull shot to the midwicket fence

3.6

Tait to Strauss, no run, review. Well well well. It was slipped down the leg side, Strauss missed an attempted fiddle to leg. Clipped the hip but Haddin thought it was more and persuaded Clarke to gamble. Tait wasn't interested and rightly so

End of over 4 (10 runs) England 22/1 (209 runs required from 46 overs, RR: 5.50, RRR: 4.54)
AJ Strauss    14* (17b 2x4)      SW Tait    2-0-17-0
IJL Trott    4* (4b 1x4)      B Lee    2-0-4-1

4.1

Lee to Trott, no run, Lee is yet to bowl a bad ball. This is perfectly straight and Trott defends back to him. Lee is full of puppy-dog excitement, despite his advancing years, and flings the ball back at Trott after he collects

4.2

Lee to Trott, no run, touch shorter this time and Trott stands tall in defence

4.3

Lee to Trott, 2 runs, neatly played, Trott walks across his stumps and flicks into the leg side

4.4

Lee to Trott, no run, again Lee hammers it down on a length outside off stump. Trott hurries to defend

4.5

Lee to Trott, 1 run, fuller ball, slower ball too. Cleverly aimed outside off to try and find the drag on. It was an inside edge, squirted to square leg, Strauss called one, Trott didn't go straight away and if the throw at the bowler's end hit, Trott would have gone

4.6

Lee to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss gets back and, with a little help from the inside edge, works this to square leg

End of over 5 (4 runs) England 26/1 (205 runs required from 45 overs, RR: 5.20, RRR: 4.55)
AJ Strauss    15* (18b 2x4)      B Lee    3-0-8-1
IJL Trott    7* (9b 1x4)      SW Tait    2-0-17-0

Tait needs a rest so Douggie gets a go...

5.1

Bollinger to Strauss, 1 run, banged in short, not a great start really, Strauss happily pulls to deep midwicket

5.2

Bollinger to Trott, no run, another bouncer, but a sharper one this time. Trott gets into position to pull but it gets too high on him so he ducks out the shot

5.3

Bollinger to Trott, no run, good follow-up ball. Pushed full and across the right hander. Trott aimed an airy drive but missed

5.4

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, back of a length and Trott whips behind square

5.5

Bollinger to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss didn't get hold of his pull shot here, probably a bit too quick on the shot. Collects a single for the effort

5.6

Bollinger to Trott, no run, Trott shuffles across his stumps to defend back to the bowler. Bollinger collects and shapes to fire a throw back at Trott, who is too consumed with marking his guard to notice

End of over 6 (3 runs) England 29/1 (202 runs required from 44 overs, RR: 4.83, RRR: 4.59)
IJL Trott    8* (13b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    1-0-3-0
AJ Strauss    17* (20b 2x4)      B Lee    3-0-8-1

6.1

Lee to Strauss, no run, lots of short balls to Strauss. Not sure why because he plays them well. This gets a touch high on him so he ducks out a pull shot

6.2

Lee to Strauss, no run, again this is a touch short. Strauss wanted, desperately, to cut but it bounced a touch on him

6.3

Lee to Strauss, no run, some width means Strauss gets to throw his arms at it, timed well enough but to extra cover

6.4

Lee to Strauss, 1 run, short, short, short. Strauss wheels a firm pull to jog a single to deep square

6.5

Lee to Trott, FOUR, for the first time Lee offers Trott a hint of room and is duly punished. Trott timed this cover drive dreamily and without anyone expecting it, it flew to the ropes

6.6

Lee to Trott, no run, having taken the boundary he can shoulder arms. And as Ravi Shastri could have said, 'when he leaves them, they stay left'

End of over 7 (5 runs) England 34/1 (197 runs required from 43 overs, RR: 4.85, RRR: 4.58)
IJL Trott    12* (15b 2x4)      B Lee    4-0-13-1
AJ Strauss    18* (24b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    1-0-3-0

7.1

Bollinger to Strauss, no run, Bollinger persists with the short stuff and has Strauss in bother here as he misses an attempted pull shot. Crashed into the stomach

7.2

Bollinger to Strauss, no run, the product of all the short balls is Strauss hanging back so Bollinger's change-up fuller delivery has Strauss pinned to the crease in defence

7.3

Bollinger to Strauss, 1 run, this time Strauss is more steady in working to midwicket

7.4

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, Trott hops to drop this into the off side and calls Strauss through for one with a "yeah, come on"

7.5

Bollinger to Strauss, OUT, Bollinger's good day just got much better! Strauss was again pinned on the crease and missed his attempted defence. Thudded into the pad and was given out. Strauss headed off but Trott has called a review! Height could be the issue.... but no, it is indeed hitting the top of leg stump

AJ Strauss lbw b Bollinger 19 (35m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.85

Kevin Pietersen is the new man.

7.6

Bollinger to Pietersen, OUT, gone first ball! Pietersen departs and Bollinger is on fire! That dreaded inside edge again. Pushed across Pietersen who stood tall to defend, clipped the inside edge and cannoned onto the stumps

KP Pietersen b Bollinger 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Doug Bollinger has turned this match on its head! Australia were down and out when he came to the crease after helping them reach 230 he's burst through England's top order.

End of over 8 (2 runs) England 36/3 (195 runs required from 42 overs, RR: 4.50, RRR: 4.64)
     DE Bollinger    2-0-5-2
IJL Trott    13* (16b 2x4)      B Lee    4-0-13-1

Ian Bell is in the form of his life, and he'll need all of it to rescue England. Meanwhile, he's Shane Watson.

8.1

Watson to Trott, no run, who starts tidily enough forcing Trott to defend

8.2

Watson to Trott, 1 run, touch too short this time allows Trott to whip into the leg side

8.3

Watson to Bell, no run, touch of swing here for Watson, just offering to wobble away. Bell careful in defence

8.4

Watson to Bell, no run, touch of extra bounce for Watson has Bell standing tall to drop this into the off side and defend

8.5

Watson to Bell, no run, good work from Watson, attacking the stumps. Bell eases into a defence

8.6

Watson to Bell, 1 run, Bell glides a single to third man which means he's on strike for Douggie's hat-trick ball!

End of over 9 (2 runs) England 38/3 (193 runs required from 41 overs, RR: 4.22, RRR: 4.70)
IR Bell    1* (4b)      SR Watson    1-0-2-0
IJL Trott    14* (18b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    2-0-5-2

Right then, Doug at the top of his mark. Short point, backward point and a slip in place...

9.1

Bollinger to Bell, 2 runs, oooh! Almost! Banged in a short ball and Bell didn't get much of a pull shot it looped wide of fine leg

9.2

Bollinger to Bell, 1 wide, shoved short and wide across Bell, who thinks about cutting before deciding against it

If you believe Ian Healy, and why wouldn't you, England are in utter disarray.

9.2

Bollinger to Bell, no run, this is left alone outside off stump

9.3

Bollinger to Bell, no run, Bollinger has a packed offside field and is pushing the ball across Bell, who so far resists

9.4

Bollinger to Bell, no run, back on a straighter line, Bell gets into line and defends comfortably

9.5

Bollinger to Bell, no run, again Bell gets a sighter outside off stump. He watches carefully before lifting his arms and bat out of trouble

9.6

Bollinger to Bell, no run, Doug sprints in, even quicker than he delivers, Bell leaves alone again outside off

End of over 10 (3 runs) England 41/3 (190 runs required from 40 overs, RR: 4.10, RRR: 4.75)
IR Bell    3* (10b)      DE Bollinger    3-0-8-2
IJL Trott    14* (18b 2x4)      SR Watson    1-0-2-0

10.1

Watson to Trott, 2 runs, Trott does what he enjoys most, shuffling across his stumps to flick to leg

10.2

Watson to Trott, no run, this is left all alone outside off stump

10.3

Watson to Trott, 1 run, a hint of inside edge means this squirts towards fine leg for a single

10.4

Watson to Bell, no run, ooh, Bell beaten outside off. Just decked away a fraction and Bell aimed one of those horrible bat-far-from body glides to third man that caused him so much trouble earlier in his career

10.5

Watson to Bell, no run, more solid this time, rocking forward to defend

10.6

Watson to Bell, 1 run, Bell has seen enough and sets off on a jaunt down the wicket, Watson sees him coming and goes short and wide, Bell slashes out to deep cover. All in one ball

End of over 11 (4 runs) England 45/3 (186 runs required from 39 overs, RR: 4.09, RRR: 4.76)
IR Bell    4* (13b)      SR Watson    2-0-6-0
IJL Trott    17* (21b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    3-0-8-2

11.1

Bollinger to Bell, 1 run, Bollinger wants to do it all! Short and Bell works a single to square leg and Bollinger hares off after it. No real need to but he's having a ball

11.2

Bollinger to Trott, no run, back of a length from the bowler, forcing Trott to defend carefully

11.3

Bollinger to Trott, no run, fuller length this time, good variation. Trott gets forward to defend to cover

11.4

Bollinger to Trott, no run, slower ball, he runs in even quicker to confuse the batsman, Trott isn't bothered and defends

11.5

Bollinger to Trott, no run, scream from the bowler as he delivers, again Trott gets fully behind a defence

11.6

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, this is a touch shorter and slower, Trott watches it carefully onto the bat steers it to third man

End of over 12 (2 runs) England 47/3 (184 runs required from 38 overs, RR: 3.91, RRR: 4.84)
IJL Trott    18* (26b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    4-0-10-2
IR Bell    5* (14b)      SR Watson    2-0-6-0

12.1

Watson to Trott, 1 run, classic Trott, shuffles across his stumps and works a single to leg

12.2

Watson to Bell, no run, Bell fancies a dart at Watson. Who wouldn't? But Watson's pace, line and length is too good

12.3

Watson to Bell, FOUR, plenty of oohs and aah from the Australian fielders as Bell drove this sweetly, but airily down the ground for four. Lee flew from mid-on to try an intercept, but couldn't reach it

12.4

Watson to Bell, no run, this time Bell defends

12.5

Watson to Bell, 1 run, inside edge again! How many have we seen today!? Plenty, that's how many. This slides off an that edge just past the stumps and runs away to fine leg

12.6

Watson to Trott, no run, Trott is solidly forward to defend. Another eventful over

End of over 13 (6 runs) England 53/3 (178 runs required from 37 overs, RR: 4.07, RRR: 4.81)
IJL Trott    19* (28b 2x4)      SR Watson    3-0-12-0
IR Bell    10* (18b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    4-0-10-2

No let up from Clarke. Bollinger is replaced by Tait.

13.1

Tait to Bell, no run, short ball to start with, plenty quick too. Bell though always seems to have time on his side and eases back to defend

13.2

Tait to Bell, FOUR, top shot this time. Bell stands up on his toes and punches a drive through cover

13.3

Tait to Bell, 1 no ball, fired up fuller here, wide of off too. Bell leaves alone. It was, however, a no ball so free hit

13.3

Tait to Bell, no run, as usual the free hit is an exercise in anti-climax. Bell gives himself room to slug a bouncer but misses

13.4

Tait to Bell, 1 run, enough width here for Bell to steer down to third man

13.5

Tait to Trott, no run, good length from Tait, full and offering to swing in. Trott blocks

13.6

Tait to Trott, 1 run, again this is a touch wide, Trott guides to deep cover and ambles a single

14.5

Watson to Trott, no run, again Trott picks out mid-on. Good pressure building by Watson

14.6

Watson to Trott, 2 runs, enough width here for Trott to unfurl a well-timed cover drive. The sweeper scoots round to field on the boundary

End of over 15 (2 runs) England 62/3 (169 runs required from 35 overs, RR: 4.13, RRR: 4.82)
IJL Trott    22* (36b 2x4)      SR Watson    4-0-14-0
IR Bell    15* (23b 2x4)      SW Tait    3-0-24-0

Meanwhile, while I find some lunch and the players have drinks it's that man. Mr Brydon Coverdale.

15.1

Tait to Bell, no run, pushed away to the off side

16.2

Hauritz to Bell, 2 runs, turns in from outside off, Bell cuts through point

16.3

Hauritz to Bell, 1 run, wristy work from Trott, as he takes one from well outside off and flicks it through mid-on

Hauritz to Bell, 1 run, turned through square leg and the man in the deep keeps that to one, though Trott wanted two, was turned back and made an ungainly dive, getting his glove in the crease though the bat was raised. The third umpire is called, but Trott is safe.

IJL Trott    32* (56b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    6-0-14-2

Now, this could be interesting. Steven Smith, who made an ugly duck, has a chance to make up for it with the ball.

23.1

Smith to Trott, no run, pushed back to the bowler, shouts of catch it but that bounced well short

23.2

Smith to Trott, OUT, oh, Smith has struck second ball! And that was a pretty poor shot from Trott, who has pulled in the air straight to the catching man at short midwicket. He's picked the fielder out precisely. It may have been the topspinner, bounced a touch more than Trott expected.

IJL Trott c Hussey b Smith 32 (87m 58b 2x4 0x6) SR: 55.17

Here's Eoin Morgan. He might enjoy hitting with the spin of Smith.

Time for a change, and some pace is coming pack. Brett Lee, to be precise.

27.1

Lee to Bell, no run, Bell watches the first one carefully and leaves outside off

27.2

Lee to Bell, OUT, gone! Lee strikes second ball of his spell, just as Smith did, and indeed it's Smith who takes the catch at backward point as Bell tries to use the pace and force a cut through the field.

IR Bell c Smith b Lee 32 (75m 61b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.45

That tips things in Australia's favour somewhat. Michael Yardy is a reasonable man to have coming in now, but there is a lot of work to be done from England's point of view.

Hauritz to Yardy, 1 run, pushed away through the off side

28.6

Hauritz to Morgan, 1 run, driven down towards long off

Lee to Morgan, no run, quick and straight, it's defended

30.2

Hauritz to Yardy, no run, punched to cover and Yardy can't find the gap

30.3

Hauritz to Yardy, FOUR, ah, well played by Yardy as he advanced and opens up to loft Hauritz over cover, and Marsh in the deep can't save it with an ungainly dive

The first boundary in 17 overs, that.

30.4

Hauritz to Yardy, no run, defended away to the off side

30.5

Hauritz to Yardy, 1 run, goes for the paddle sweep now

30.6

MH Yardy    9* (13b 1x4)      B Lee    6-0-17-2

31.1

Lee to Yardy, 3 runs, pushed away through the leg side and Hauritz is in trouble, he seems to have hurt his right shoulder sliding to save that boundary. Immediately it's obvious that this is a serious injury, he is down and in pain, lying on his back and the physio comes out to help him. Really nasty to see that sort of injury, he just sort of jarred the shoulder during the slide.

He's walking off the field now and is in serious pain. You'd have to think he's in doubt for the World Cup now, which brings Xavier Doherty back into consideration. What a rotten piece of luck for Hauritz, who was just making his way back after a summer of being harshly treated by the selectors.

The players have taken drinks during that break as Hauritz was attended to.

31.2

Lee to Morgan, no run, defended back down the pitch

31.3

Lee to Morgan, FOUR, good shot, as it's cut away behind point and wide enough of third man to reach the boundary

31.4

Lee to Morgan, no run, defended with the full face of the bat

31.5

Lee to Morgan, 1 run, pushed through the gap at cover

31.6

Lee to Yardy, 1 run, a slower bouncer to end the over, and it's pulled to deep midwicket

Now there will be a bowling change with Hauritz off, and we have a change for you as well. Sahil Dutta will take you through the rest of this match.

End of over 32 (9 runs) England 126/5 (105 runs required from 18 overs, RR: 3.93, RRR: 5.83)
MH Yardy    13* (15b 1x4)      B Lee    7-0-26-2

Poor, poor Hauritz. Shafted by incompetent selectors all summer and now this. Anyway, here's Watson.

32.1

Watson to Yardy, no run, decent start from Watto, back of a length around off stump, angled towards point

32.2

Watson to Yardy, no run, touch of extra bounce here surprises Yardy, who stares down at the pitch suspiciously

32.3

Watson to Yardy, no run, now a firm drive picks out mid-off

32.4

Watson to Yardy, no run, play and a miss outside off. Watson creaks up and delivers this invitingly outside off but Yardy's swish finds nothing

32.5

Watson to Yardy, no run, beaten again! Slower ball just outside off stump. Yardy dabbles at it half-heartedly and fails to connect

32.6

Watson to Yardy, 1 run, precious bat on ball earns Yardy a single to cover. It also steals him the strike

End of over 33 (1 run) England 127/5 (104 runs required from 17 overs, RR: 3.84, RRR: 6.11)
MH Yardy    14* (21b 1x4)      SR Watson    5-0-15-0
EJG Morgan    19* (27b 1x4 1x6)      B Lee    7-0-26-2

The big man, Douggie B is back.

33.1

Bollinger to Yardy, 1 run, starts short and Yardy does the right thing by working it square of the wicket on the leg side for one to bring Morgan on strike

33.2

Bollinger to Morgan, 1 run, good line from Bollinger, hugging off stump and Morgan stands tall to drop to cover and speed through for a single

33.3

Bollinger to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy works a single, opening the face to steer to third man

33.4

Bollinger to Morgan, 1 run, neatly done from Morgan. Picking off riskless singles. This is short and he pushes gently down the ground

33.5

Bollinger to Yardy, 5 wides, oops, Bollinger aims a yorker but it's way too full, and wide down leg and it slips away past a diving Haddin for five wides

33.5

Bollinger to Yardy, no run, back on the right line here, the length is good too and Yardy gets fully behind it

33.6

Bollinger to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy pinches the strike again by dropping this past the bowler and scampering through

End of over 34 (10 runs) England 137/5 (94 runs required from 16 overs, RR: 4.02, RRR: 5.87)
MH Yardy    17* (25b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    7-0-24-2
EJG Morgan    21* (29b 1x4 1x6)      SR Watson    5-0-15-0

Okay, things are hotting up. Morgan has sent for the Batting Powerplay Yardy to face Watson...

34.1

Watson to Yardy, no run, good start from Watson, full and straight and Yard's drive finds cover

34.2

Watson to Yardy, no run, full again and Yardy's drive is mistimed and bobbles to cover

34.3

Watson to Yardy, 2 runs, banged in shorter and Yardy edged down the wicket before heaving this up in the air towards deep square, luckily for him the poor timing meant it went on the bounce

34.4

Watson to Yardy, 1 run, this is more secure, steered wide of point

34.5

Watson to Morgan, no run, Morgan dances down the wicket and drives firmly into the ground back to Watson. Crowd catch

34.6

Watson to Morgan, OUT, that could be the match! Watson gets the key wicket and Tait, of all people, holds on to a good catch. Morgan tried to flick it to the midwicket boundary it went high and Tait had to run back from mid-on and steady himself to take a tough chance

EJG Morgan c Tait b Watson 21 (48m 31b 1x4 1x6) SR: 67.74

The Powerplay always brings wickets, sometimes runs too but it's done the business for Australia. England needed Morgan to be their Marsh.

End of over 35 (3 runs) England 140/6 (91 runs required from 15 overs, RR: 4.00, RRR: 6.06)
     SR Watson    6-0-18-1
MH Yardy    20* (29b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    7-0-24-2

Tim Bresnan has emerged with a runner. Not sure why yet. Morgan is the man, probably needs some time in the middle

35.1

Lee to Bresnan, no run, Bresnan nudges his first ball into the leg side

35.2

Lee to Bresnan, no run, Lee finds a good length and line, nothing for Bresnan to work with and it's blocked

35.3

35.4

Lee to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy drops this by his toes and calls Prior through for the single

35.5

36.1

Watson to Bresnan, 2 runs, Bresnan again heaves at the ball, clearing the infield without much timing but it earns him a couple

36.2

Watson to Bresnan, 1 run, this time it's securely blocked to cover

36.3

Watson to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy lines up a leg-side thwack but Watson sees what's happening and throws it outside off, Yardy ends up steering a single wide of cover

36.4

Watson to Bresnan, OUT, Watson's the man! The runner has caused all kinds of trouble. Bresnan dropped this by his toes, and Yardy set off for one a non-existent single, Prior sent him back but Watson had gathered and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end. Crazy single attempted

MH Yardy run out 22 (43m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.96

36.5

Watson to Bresnan, 1 run, this is similar to last time round but the single is completed without fuss

36.6

Watson to Tredwell, no run, Tredwell watches his first ball carefully and allows it to pass by outside off

End of over 37 (5 runs) England 148/7 (83 runs required from 13 overs, RR: 4.00, RRR: 6.38)
JC Tredwell    0* (1b)      SR Watson    7-0-23-1
TT Bresnan    6* (9b)      B Lee    8-0-29-2

37.1

Lee to Bresnan, 1 run, short ball dug in from Lee, Bresnan heaves a pull shot without timing it. Trickles down to deep midwicket

37.2

Lee to Tredwell, 1 run, Tredwell is away, very carefully flicking a single to leg

37.3

Lee to Bresnan, no run, carefully blocked into the infield

37.4

Lee to Bresnan, FOUR, short ball, slower too, and Bresnan saw all of it. Stood back, cleared the front leg and slapped it to the midwicket rope

37.5

Lee to Bresnan, no run, full ball wide of off, Bresnan gave himself room and in the end left it alone

37.6

Lee to Bresnan, FOUR, poor delivery, with fine leg up a short ball angled into the leg side is a bad idea. Bresnan helps it on its way past the short fine leg

End of over 38 (10 runs) England 158/7 (73 runs required from 12 overs, RR: 4.15, RRR: 6.08)
TT Bresnan    15* (14b 2x4)      B Lee    9-0-39-2
JC Tredwell    1* (2b)      SR Watson    7-0-23-1

38.1

Watson to Tredwell, no run, Watson constantly finding a good area and Tredwell can only pat back to the bowler

38.2

Watson to Tredwell, no run, nicely-timed drive here, Tredwell thought it was through but a diving stop at cover saved

38.3

Watson to Tredwell, 1 run, touch shorter from Watson and Tredwell steers to third man

38.4

Watson to Bresnan, 1 leg bye, flicks the pad and they get through for a leg bye

38.5

Watson to Tredwell, no run, defended back down the pitch

38.6

Watson to Tredwell, 1 run, and he guides a single to third man to finish the over

End of over 39 (3 runs) England 161/7 (70 runs required from 11 overs, RR: 4.12, RRR: 6.36)
JC Tredwell    3* (7b)      SR Watson    8-0-25-1

39.1

Tait to Tredwell, no run, jams the bat down to defend

39.2

Tait to Tredwell, no run, bouncer now and he ducks under it

39.3

Tait to Tredwell, 1 leg bye, again they scamper through for a leg bye as he can't get it away off the bat

39.4

Tait to Bresnan, 1 run, Bresnan uses the pace of Tait, as he cuts in the air, it bounces down to third man

39.5

Tait to Tredwell, 1 run, and a roar from Tait as he sends this one down, Tredwell cuts behind square

Now, just before that ball Tait was doing some stretching, didn't look 100% fit. And now after that ball, he's looking ginger. Seems to be grabbing the left groin area. And in fact he can't finish the over - Tait is going off to join Hauritz on the injury list.

Michael Clarke will finish the over, with just one ball to go.

39.6

Clarke to Bresnan, no run, clunked into the turf and Bresnan can't get it away

End of over 40 (3 runs) England 164/7 (67 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 4.10, RRR: 6.70)

40.1

Watson to Tredwell, no run, Watson lands a perfect yorker that Tredwell just about stabs out in time

40.2

Watson to Tredwell, 1 run, an inside edge almost squeezes though bat an pad but it drops by Tredwell's feet and Bresnan is on him for a single

40.3

Watson to Bresnan, 1 run, Bresnan is not moving his feet much, he's standing and for the moment delivering a single, thumped to long-on

40.4

Watson to Tredwell, FOUR, poor delivery and it's just what England needed. Tredwell gets space to free his arms outside off and clunks it away for four

40.5

Watson to Tredwell, no run, fuller and straighter this time and Tredwell blocks back to the bowler. Really needs singles off balls like that

40.6

Watson to Tredwell, 1 run, driven firmly, if not with the best timing, back down the ground to steal the strike

End of over 41 (7 runs) England 171/7 (60 runs required from 54 balls, RR: 4.17, RRR: 6.66)

41.3

Bollinger to Bresnan, no run, repeats the shot and this time toe-ends to mid-off

41.4

Bollinger to Bresnan, no run, cracker! Bollinger is all over this match! Jags one away with the angle and it skims past the edge

41.5

Bollinger to Bresnan, no run, beaten again! Slower ball this time, turning into a very very good over

41.6

Bollinger to Bresnan, no run, excellent over ends with Bresnan hopping to defend back to the bowler

End of over 42 (1 run) England 172/7 (59 runs required from 48 balls, RR: 4.09, RRR: 7.37)
TT Bresnan    17* (23b 2x4)      DE Bollinger    8-0-25-2
JC Tredwell    11* (17b 1x4)      SR Watson    9-0-32-1

Right then, if England don't land some big blows here this game will be up. David Hussey is the man to bowl it.

42.1

Hussey to Tredwell, 1 run, Tredwell leans forward and drops a single to cover

42.2

Hussey to Bresnan, 1 leg bye, Bresnan gets his pad in the way of one which would have been a wide down the leg side. Bobbles off the pads for a leg bye

43.1

Bollinger to Tredwell, 1 run, Yardy stands tall to drop this by his toes. Prior scampers through for a single

43.2

Bollinger to Bresnan, OUT, Bollinger has his third! Short ball that Bresnan tried to flip up to the third man boundary, couldn't get it fine enough and Watson ran in to take the catch

TT Bresnan c Watson b Bollinger 19 (37m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 70.37

Ajmal Shahzad is the new man, Australia have almost pulled off a brilliant win. Incredible comeback!

43.3

Bollinger to Tredwell, no run, worked square of the wicket where a good diving stop earns a massive cheer. Australia buzzing!

43.4

Bollinger to Tredwell, 2 runs, Tredwell clipped this into the leg side, there shouldn't have been two but he ran sharply to come back for it

43.5

Bollinger to Tredwell, OUT, It's Bollinger's day! Tredwell is late coming forward and it smacks him flush on the pad in front. One more to go!

A Shahzad run out 2 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia win by 46 runs That really is a special win. Australia were on the turf at 8 for 142 but clawed their way back through a sensational Shaun Marsh hundred. He was rightly named man of the match but would not have got there if it weren't for Doug Bollinger, who made 30 in a crucial partnership before bursting through England's top order to finish with 4 for 28.

Nathan Hauritz made a very good comeback, proving that he should have been playing all summer, until he sadly dislocated his shoulder while fielding.

England will be cheered partly in the knowledge that their frontline attack - Anderson, Broad and Swann - was missing but they've lost three on the bounce now. Andrew McGlashan will tell you all about it in his bulletin and we also have a gallery of the best of today's pictures.

That's all from me, Sahil, and from Brydon. We'll be back on Sunday to see if Australia can keep their run of form going.

End of over 45 (4 runs) England 184/10 (47 runs required from 30 balls, RR: 4.08, RRR: 9.40)
